Sample text

Initially we need to represent the sound pressure at the source and the two eardrums using sinusoidal functions, or more technically, using Fourier transforms. In Fourier analysis, one sinusoidal function can be related to another using a transfer function. Thus, we need a transfer function that relates the sound at the source to the sounds at each ear. These HRTFs are functions of frequency 1 A transfer function is a mathematical expression relating one quantity, usually an input, to another quantity, usually an output.

Of course, computer gaming and VR technology go hand in hand with computer animation. In computer animation, we hope to produce realistic pictures or a sequence of pictures that would be very difficult, impossible or too expensive to obtain by conventional means. The movie, TV and advertising industries have adopted this use of 3D computer animation with great enthusiasm, and, therefore, perhaps it is they who have provided the main driving force behind the rapid improvements in realism that can be achieved with computer graphics.
